Sugarcane

We tried it for the first time last night, and I'd say it's a very good addition to Miami's dinning scene. It has great atmosphere, with a beautiful inside/outside bar. Service was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Standout items were the burrata with golden beets, and the roasted cauliflower with bagna cauda sauce. Everyone's been raving about the whole roasted chicken, so I ordered one, and although it was excellently prepared, I believe it was a commercial chicken, so it didn't have that yummy chickeny flavor that you get with heritage breeds. Curious to see what everyone else thinks!

    I wish they'd post a menu online because I keep experiencing a disconnect between the name ("Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill") and the food people keep describing (roast chicken, etc.) and I'd like to make sense of it.

      Probably because menu still getting tweaked. The "Sugarcane" probably comes from the sugar in one of their drinks. There's a large "Raw Bar" (had oysters the first night we went, also where sushi is prepped). "Gril"l is the robata where we had excellent octopus w aji panca and the cauliflower with bagna cauda. The chicken must come from somewhere else (otherwise it'd be Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill Kitchen Lounge.Outdoor Patio...). I say they just stick with Sugarcane and leave it at that.
